I couldn't resist the itch and created a Paladin. His gear is aight. I am just running around Faydwer killing Orcs doing a little Fishing and Baking Sandwiches - maybe some low level PvP? It really does feel like I'm playing a single player game much worse compared to when I first started on Red.
Red is dead and it's been a shit server for about three years. Even massive non classic xp bonus and nearly uncontested dragons couldn't create a healthy pop... Wipe it clean, you can make a lot. More money off the RMTing then Rogean
